The Character Schedule Writing Challenge: Winners!07:48
Wow! There were a TON of amazing submissions to The Character Schedule Writing challenge. If you're new to the challenges (or to WEbook) these are short writing exercises geared towards helping authors improve a specific aspect of their craft and promote a healthy discourse between contestants.
We were blown away by the inventiveness and energy that populated these entries, it was truly a pleasure and honor to read them all. In a post earlier this week about creating original fictional characters, we stressed the importance of giving characters specific and unique details to them stand out to a reader. Nearly every entry achieved this in one way or another, offering a special quirk or behavior pattern that made the character come alive. Great job everyone!
We picked our usual 3 winners, but have also decided to include another bunch of submissions that caught our eye. This is by no means a comprehensive list of the entries worth reading, and I encourage everyone to peruse the submission pool, if you haven't already.
